Description

Oh, What A Lovely War!

By Ted Allan, Charles Chilton, Joan Littlewood and Gerry Raffles
Directed by Autumn Smith

A clownish look at the foibles of combat, Oh, What A Lovely War! is a satire with songs that questions humanity's glorification of battle and the cycle of violence. This modern staging will take this classic, WWI themed play and place it firmly in 2020, within the world of gamers and mega-violent video games, to force a look at how we pass along warlike thinking to the next generation. This show is presented in association with Hart House’s 100th Anniversary and salutes the House's historic connection to the military efforts in the Great War.

Approximate Running Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes with additional time for an intermission

PLEASE NOTE: Come to the matinee early to enjoy an in-depth discussion with one of the artists from the show. The chat will begin at 1 pm in the lobby. Admission included in ticket purchase.
